rejecting pyongyang's characterization of president trump's tweet as a declaration of war. we've not declared war on north korea and frankly the suggestion of that is absurd it's never appropriate for a country to shoot down another country's aircraft when it's over international waters our goal is still the same we continue to seek the peaceful the nuclearization of the korean peninsula that's our focus doing that through both the most maximum economic and diplomatic pressures as possible at this point. now iraq is refusing to hold talks with the kurdish regional government about the results of monday's controversial secession referendum the iraqi prime minister called the vote unconstitutional during a televised address the polls closed. hundreds of kurds took to the streets to celebrate the end of voting nevertheless paul is expected to produce our comfortable win for the procession campaign it's nonbinding
referendum is fiercely opposed by iraq and its neighbors. could provoke conflict. has been speaking to kurds about what historic vote means to them. it's a day. they had hoped to see in their lifetime so eager to be the first to cast their ballots suzanne was so excited about the referendum she had a restless night. is the first time she's been able to vote. i am so happy i wanted to be one of the first ones here i only slept for three hours this is a historic day for us it's not the first time it has voted but he too was in early he does his blue finger was pride. i have voted in presidential and parliamentary elections before but this is the most important one because it's about independence . everyone kurds arabs syrians you know everyone who needs safety
wants to live in freedom. similar scenes will be repeated around the kurdish region people streaming into polling stations however they could potentially in areas where the kurdish president. has a strong foothold so happy to. devote also went to cook despite fears it could further alienate. nearly half of the city's population who feel they have been marginalized by the kurds so this is the ballot. everything on the ballot is written in three other languages arabic assyrian. the regional government sending
a message to the future. will be inclusive. but william benjamin is not convinced he's a christian and has voted no. the same interest in us and other political events before this referendum is just a way to lure the minority we respect their promises but until now they've not respected all rights and every reason the history of this land excluding all part of. the kurdish president has said that it's time to end the failed partnership with baghdad a message that resonates among kurds who hope that this is the day that they write what they consider to be. taking over the disputed territories but. those who feel history is repeating itself this time. under simmons has been following developments just over the border in turkey where opposition has been strong. as iraqi kurds took part in their historic vote here
on the iraq turkey border the symbolism of conflict and russia type two on the turkish president using hostile words again and accusing the kurdish leadership of opportunism this is what he had to say. our armed forces are on the borders with iraq to do whatever it takes iran is well we'll do whatever it takes our air force stands ready we will never allow anyone or anything to go from turkey to iraq this week we will adopt so many other measures will close the borders nothing to go across the border. after the president spoke officials clarified what he said saying that there was a list of actions which was being rolled out over the coming days if not weeks the president also went on to say that the oil flow from kurdistan that's more than a half a million barrels of oil
a day in the pipeline that runs through turkey could be stopped just like that and what would the kurds do then who would they sell their oil to now the prime minister but not a yield to him also spoke he was more measured calmer in his tones and he said that the exercise here was not to be read as an act of war as confrontation with the kurds he said that there could be dialogue but he also was bitter about what the kurdish leadership was doing suggesting that in bad times they'd been helped out and now this he said that there could be small or possibly large action from the military but this would be on measured ground location focused as it is with syria he also said that the number of other measures may be taken that issue of the border here and whether it's closed it's slightly unclear but it could be that it will be closed in one direction first and the other later on that along with other
measures which could not only hurt the kurds but also hurt turkey with its economy . the u.s. president on transfer out with the national football league shows no sign of easing dozens of n.f.l. players coaches even some owners and joined in protest against trump's call for a boycott he suggested players who now during the national anthem were disrespecting the u.s. flag from browns as the latest. president donald trump's feud with professional american football players moved from stadiums on sunday to the u.s. capitol on monday to separate who said about these men. and what they are doing these mostly like men but also when. they use the term. s.o.b. it is beneath them. should be the need the deaths of the president of the united states of america the dispute began last year when san
francisco quarterback call in caper nick initially refused to stand during the playing of the national anthem he said he was protesting police brutality and the killings of african-americans by police officers at that son of. last week trump used a vulgar epithet to denounce players who also refused to stand during the song urged team owners to summarily fire them and then called on fans to boycott games of teams that refused to do so but on sunday hundreds of players either refused to stand linked arms in solidarity or declined to come on the field until the anthem was over people say it's encouraging patriotic but it's unpatriotic of the president respected are the right players in other sports also knelt during the anthem several team owners voiced support for players exercising their right of free speech as did democrats in congress people are forgetting like collin kaplan
it did it from the beginning it was not to be disrespectful of the flag or of america it was about first amendment rights and also people being killed in the street black and brown the white house fired back it's always appropriate for the president of this country to promote our flag to promote our national anthem and ask people to respect that some football fans saw the quarrel as an unnecessary distraction we're here to see a game that's what we're trying to do just watch a sporting event you know from our everyday lives and just relax and have a good time. the anthem also known as the star-spangled banner was written in eighteen fourteen to celebrate a victory over invading british forces near baltimore it was made the official national anthem in one thousand nine hundred thirty one it celebrates the american flag which plays an outsized role in the u.s.

civilian death toll that we have been that we have documented you know it's difficult to imagine lowering the threshold or the delegating the authority to a lower level would not have. in the past few months u.s. led forces have carried out a number of strikes that have hit markets schools and mosques in syria and iraq in june united nations officials said there had been a staggering loss of life particularly during the offensive to retake the city of raka and the surrounding areas a fight which is still ongoing in al-jazeera beirut wilbur's bosses apologized for past mistakes as the firm's for fights a decision by london not to renew the taxi service license chief executive. promised changes after persons capital transport regulated deemed unfit to run writing in an open letter he said while obama has revolutionized the way people
move in cities around the world it's equally true that we've got things wrong along the way on behalf of everyone that globally i apologize for the mistakes we've made as german politicians analyze the results of sunday's election many are wondering how a far right groups surged into third place german chancellor angela merkel won her fourth term but the anti immigrant a.f.d. party seized one million votes from her conservatives and then barbara visited the eastern city of dresden to find out. from the beginning he's just twenty five but he's already risen up the party structure julian visa and joined the f.t. or alternative to germany when it started four years ago now it's grown to become the third largest party in parliament it's also being called dangerous and democratic and racist as. i see the f.t.
as a respectable conservative party with plenty of liberal ideas it's going to great lengths to represent this if you point in the dry theory line between itself and far right attitudes that's the only way it can be successful. here in dazed and in eastern germany the party has solid support in fact in this region saxony the f.t. received more votes than any other party frank going to get born locally just after the second world war says many people here feel neglected by the traditional parties but the a.f.p. has also been boosted by chancellor merkel's decision to let in hundreds of thousands of refugees two years ago here b i n one i think asylum seekers and immigrants are treated better than people on low incomes and the f.t. brings that out into the open and given the a.f.p. success here you'd think it would be easy to find people who voted for it but you'd be wrong quite a while trying to find an a.f.p. supporter will explain their choice to us but we simply haven't found anybody who
like mitt on camera to voting for the party but what about in the working class suburbs here we did find one unashamed voter. i feel left behind but never understands me that was disturbing me this couple say they didn't vote but think many people back to the f.t. for reasons other than immigration against i think it was just a protest yes. and when al jazeera asked foreigners living here if the a.f.p. success worried them they sound so was typical. and whatever happens i think germany will remain a good to your credit country. it will be your main towards refugees whoever is in power. that's certainly a hope shared by a majority of german voters what's less clear is how much pressure the newly strengthened will exert on the government to toughen its line with al-jazeera dresden.
and time to take you through some of the headlines here on al-jazeera now north korea's foreign minister is accusing the us president of declaring war saying pyongyang has the right to shoot down american bombers now the white house has dismissed the suggestion as absurd. last weekend claim that our leadership wouldn't be around much longer and he declared war on our country. the fact that this comes from the united states president is clearly a declaration of war. since the united states declared war on our country we have every right to make counter measures including the right to shoot down united states strategic bombers even when they're not yet inside north korea in space iraq is refusing to hold talks with the kurdish regional government about the results of monday's controversial secession referendum the iraqi prime minister called the vote unconstitutional during
